Sea TALK project, Antwerp Maritime Academy

The Antwerp Maritime Academy is one of the partners of the SeaTALK project. Maritime English lecturers Alison Noble, Willy Van Parys and Christophe Collard are taking part in the project.

Communication problems are often blamed for accidents at sea. Maritime English experts argue that the shipping industry should follow aviation’s lead in assessing English competency as part of a vessel’s safety audit procedures. This could be prevented through global recognition of the need for a standard approach and assessment framework for Maritime English.

The SeaTALK project aims to establish a standard approach to teaching and learning Maritime

English through the creation of standard curriculum content, learning outcomes, assessment methods, scoring and credit systems — all delivered through an innovative online platform. The SeaTALK platform offers Maritime English Training Modules for each rank and function on board.


With funding from the European Commission’s Lifelong Learning Programme and support from

universities, university colleges and businesses across Europe, the SeaTALK project aims to involve the rest of the global Maritime English community in creating the largest existing database for Maritime English resources.
